According to ADB website, the program supports the government's key reform priorities aimed at employment generation by increasing competitiveness in the economy with an inclusive approach through the labor market. The structural reform priorities include efforts to enhance the business climate by promoting competition policy, regulatory efficiency, competitive logistics, and private sector participation in infrastructure projects through public private partnerships (PPPs). The program also supports the government in promoting competitive labor markets by piloting a youth employment program to empower young people to find decent jobs (known as JobStart Philippines) and a tourism-industry-led skills and services development program, and through longer-term labor policy reforms.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
